Acts 1:11 NLT: “Men of Galilee,” they said, “why are you standing here staring into heaven? Jesus has been taken from you into heaven, but someday he will return from heaven in the same way you saw him go!”
My dear friend in Christ, some people are beginning to think in their hearts that the whole idea about heaven and hell is false and a religious way of threatening men to believe in God. So assume that such things don’t exist and Jesus has already come and gone, hence, He is not coming again. Let me make it clear to you that it is a deception to think that Jesus is not coming again. He is certainly coming again just as the Bible recorded today.
Heaven is a reality. The angel said to them that Jesus was taken away from them into heaven. This means that there is heaven even as there is earth. We are currently on earth but He was taken into heaven. This implies that there are two realms: the spiritual and physical realm. Heaven is a spiritual realm. Jesus himself pointed to the fact of heaven when he said: ” whatever you bind on earth shall be considered bound in heaven and whatever you loose on earth shall be considered posed in heaven”. Mathew 18:18
I implore you to keep your mind fixed on Heavenly things where your eternal home is while we wait for the coming of the Lord. Be prepared now for it will be too late when you see Him appear in glory. Shalom.
Declare to yourself loud: Come Lord Jesus.
1. Heavenly Father, help me to be prepared when Jesus returns, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
2. Please add your personal intentions.
